Wow! That is nice.
Even if it is one out of 20, that is a real keeper'
Well done!

Thank you kind sir, Most of the 20 are good shots as well. Sun shone from behind me, Owl performed well and camera did its job. Straightforward Bird setting 800mm,no messing about with the settings. Maybe next time I will zoom out just a bit more to about 1000 or 1200.
